BloodyElbow dug up this article from the Korea Times drubbing Hong Man Choi for getting the nod against Fedor (sure, it’s not official but over in Korea it’s considered a worse kept secret than Rampage as TUF coach was over here).
Choi is still licking the wounds from his embarrassing loss to LeBanner Saturday, when he barely threatened the hard-hitting Frenchman and was fortunate to avoid a knockout.
The loss was especially embarrassing since it was the first match since Choi turned himself into a national joke last month by releasing a hip-hop album with model and wannabe pop star Kang Su-hui, although LeBanner would surely say he did well for a singer.
Among the biggest fighters in the world at 2.18 meters and 160 kilograms, Choi, a former folk wrestling champion, is good at being tall but not much else, a walking eyesore of an athlete who fights with the skills and grace of a potato.
This isn’t the first time Choi has been on the receiving end of a drubbing by the Korean media. Apparently over the summer everyone shat on him for singlehandedly ruining K1 Dynamite. How dare he have a tumor, after all!
As for the rap album, I am officially asking you guys, my readers, to help locate this musical abortion so we can post it up here for everyone’s enjoyment!
**UPDATE** Thanks to intenso for the video of Hong Man Choi dancing to his first single
